Extensive campaign (4h) as GDI and NOD
What does not
What was not tested
Installed version 1.0 from CD(s) without issues on clean wine prefix with winearch=win32, then some issues came up:
* The game crashed at launch. This was resolved by updating the game with the official patch 2.03 (https://cnc-comm.com/tiberian-sun/downloads/patches/2.03).
* The popup-menus on the game start-page got stuck and didn't work. Also, after starting a game, the game would crash. This was resolved by changing DirectDrawRenderer to gdi in regedit:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine -> Direct3D
In this key, create a String value called "DirectDrawRenderer" with value "gdi" (https://wiki.winehq.org/Useful_Registry_Keys)
Now the game will start, run and work as expected.
